"I was put off by all the breasts. The peekaboo-slit-neckline-breast-exposing dress. the breast-on-a-platter strapless dress."

Over at the WaPo slideshow of Golden Globes fashions, one commenter seems a tad breast-o-phobic.

But I'd just like to say that this approach to clothing breasts — inflicted on Jessica Chastain, chastising Chastain — is one of the worst fashion screw-ups I've ever seen. Why didn't anyone see the optical illusion and stop her from leaving the house in that thing?

Chastain thought she was going to the SAG Awards.

Aren't breasts the reason they call it the Golden Globes?

There's probably no one in her life who will tell her the truth about how she looks. It's why every woman needs a brother.

Chastain's dress is a good argument for going topless. Looking like an old lady is dangerous in the age of death panels.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. and Breasts are usually what is being being eyed. I blame God.

Helen Mirren's dress (13) is quite handsome.

Aren't we tired of strapless yet?

prairie wind said...

Yes, ricpic. Notice the sleeves.

Ruth Anne Adams, that made me LOL.

Ruth Anne is a gem! But I would think a fellow redhead would be more gracious!! The kid can act, she just needs a little mentoring Ruth Anne.

It's been all down hill since the death of Farrah Fawcett.

Liz Taylor wore a dress like the one Ms Chastain almost wore about 50 years ago and it made worldwide headlines, mostly because she had something to put in it.

Rarely have I seen people making so much of so little.

And ric is right about Dame Helen.

And George Clooney looks like a creaky old geezer escorting his "niece."

Lucky guy.

"I was put off by all the breasts..."

Okay, that's where the writer lost me.

I better check out the pics--got to keep abreast of the times..

Lovely lady, but man, that dress looks like something somebody's little sister made when she was learning to sew.

A lifetime achievement award for Dolly Parton is in order here.

Remember folks, Hollywood by definition is fake.

It is also by definition a circus. And you see the clowns out there.

To be noticed the female clowns have to show more and more. Hence the boobs.

It makes her look like she has sagging breasts.

Amy Poehler had a sweet rack yo!

Good looking actresses should learn that it is more important to wear something that makes themselves look good rather than just wearing something that looks good.

That is a very ugly dress. Looks like a big towel draping round her neck. Shows a sliver of deflated boobs. What the hell was wrong with her? Didn't she have mirror?

Astro said...

When I saw that photo of Jessica Chastain, I turned my phone upside down and giggled it a bit. Well, that was a waste of time.

el polacko said...

so who decided that saggy breasts are not attractive ? seems kind of age-ist at the very least.

(tip o'the hat to titus) TITS !!

Rusty said...

I'm almost never put off by breasts.

deborah said...

I saw the Joan Rivers show today, and for the 'fashole' award, two of her regular panel chose Halle Berry and one chose Lucy Liu. Joan overruled all three and went with Chastain.

Anthony said...

Katharine McPhee's dress (#34) did her no favors, either, but it's not as bad as Chastain's.

Jessica Chastain's dress looked great in HD as she gave her bouncy acceptance speech. Still photography just doesn't do it justice.

I thought the same thing when I saw her dress, why didn't someone say something and stop her? But maybe she was making a fashion statement about what large breasts do look like later in life. Her breasts are actually fairly small, so could this have been her way of making people look at her breasts, which ordinarily they tend to overlook? If so, she has quite a sense of humor and a lot of nerve.
